A Dream Come True

RedCrest Cardinal is a gorgeous venue and after you go there in person it will not take much convincing because the landscape, simple beauties and organic environment speak for itself. Anne Marie (who is the Sales Director and our event coordinator) was our Wedding Fairy Godmother. We clicked with her right from the beginning because her expertise, understanding, patience, patience...and did I mention - PATIENCE, were all bundled under a motherly care. She never made us feel bad about any of our requests and it was a pure joy to walk through wedding planning with her. The staff were so helpful and thanks to them, the day ran without a hitch. The ceremony was under the pergola with a small pond as the backdrop and it was breathtaking. The sound of our live musicians were caught perfectly in that space and the assistance of the golf carts offered our guests ease of access. Our cocktail hour split between the patio and the Clubhouse which gave our guests options and lots of room to mingle comfortably. Our reception was in the tent and perfectly fit our 135 guests between round tables and harvest tables. Our family and friends said it was one of the best weddings they had been to and spoke to the abundance and quality of the food and the kind service. We look back on our Wedding Day with full hearts and gratitude that RedCrest was the home to our best and favourite day. Thank You RC! (Photographer: Liana Yates from Birch and Lace)

This has been a long road

We hired Cardinal back in September of 2020 when there were promises of great food, service and overall look. One of the many reasons we chose Cardinal was because it looked like a great venue- you didn鈥檛 need much in terms of decor so figured it was a great cost effective venue as it was all encompassing (great price for food, great venue coordinator team and experienced team). Little did we know that the main Venue coordinator/team would leave, the chef gone, and the replacement catering service company would be fired). Right when we thought the team had everything figured out, there was a big menu tasting, 2 days later we get notified that the team has been fired and they鈥檒l be in touch when they have a new team. 2 months go by and we still don鈥檛 hear anything- we finally get word that they hired a wedding coordinator and a chef, but the chef wouldn鈥檛 do wedding food. We were told by head of operations it was in our best interest to hire an external catering company (at the same time the new wedding coordinator also left). With that suggestion, we also looked into an external wedding planner. So our total budget increased drastically and the team at Cardinal had no care or sense of helping making our big day special.

Honestly, the entire experience with this venue was so poor and it made the wedding planning experience so much more stressful than it needed to be

The look of the venue is great, but if I had one suggestion for any new bride if you go with the venue, make sure you have a wedding planner that will handle everything (including communication with the venue).

Poor Planning Post-Covid

We had an awful time with this venue. We booked Redcrest back in January 2020 prior to the Covid pandemic when they were under a different management company. We had heard great things about this venue - including the food, wedding planning and coordination. It is a beautiful location.

After patiently waiting out the worst of the pandemic for two years, my partner and I were finally able to have our celebration of marriage at this venue in June 2022. Prior to our wedding date though we went through many significant challenges with this venue. In March 2022 we attended a food tasting and were matched with a wedding coordinator through the venue - then two weeks later we were informed that the catering company was fired along with the coordinator. We waited patiently for two months and heard nothing from the venue despite multiple communications with them, before finally being matched with a
a new wedding coordinator in May 2022. Thankfully all seemed to be going well as they had the catering organized for the event which was our most significant concern. However, 3 days before our wedding we were informed that this new wedding coordinator had been fired by the venue, with no back up plan in place! Thankfully our wedding was still able to go forward - had it not been for the chef and golf services manager at the venue who pulled in many hours overtime to put our special day together. The wedding was great and all of our guests had a wonderful time.

This being said it was not worth the stress of having to go through this. I really highly recommend for couples to steer clear of this venue. While it is a beautiful space, the new management there cares little about their staff and will cut corners at any cost. It is wise to look elsewhere for your special day.

Perfect Event! - Engagement Party in the Executive Lounge

We had the most perfect evening at Cardinal Golf Club Executive Lounge! It was cozy, clean and exactly what we had envisioned. There was plenty of space for the tables, dance floor, DJ and Photo booth activities! The food was amazing and the servers working the event were polite and courteous. There is no initial venue/site fee unless you can't meet the minimum capacity of the space which was an added bonus! The overall experience was perfect and many of my guests loved the entire event ! I highly recommend planning your engagement party/ wedding or any other activity at Cardinal Golf Club!

Dream Wedding

Gina the wedding coordinator was amazing and very hands on! She took care of a lot of the small details like decorating and organized tastings. The venue is georgous and requires little decoration by you. We had an outside ceremony and the backdrop is spectacular! Green grass and a pond with a fountain. The mini golf area has several spots for photos. Food is included at this venue and my guests are still talking about how delicious it was!

Amazing Experience and Customer Service!

We really cannot say enough about how positive our experience with RedCrest was. AnneMarie was amazing to work with- always responsive, helpful and supportive. Everything went so smoothly because of how organized and on top of things the staff were. The venue is beautiful, the food was great, and the level of customer service you receive with this venue is outstanding.

Amazing Experience

Alison and Anne Marie were both amazing to work with. They are both professional and detail oriented and are always available to answer your questions leading up to the big day. They also know all of the right questions to ask YOU to make sure your wedding day runs smooth from start to finish. The day of my wedding the weather was calling for 80% chance of rain, but I had this weird gut feeling that everything was going to be fine and kept suggesting that I wanted the ceremony outdoors. I knew I was coming off a bit crazy, but they listened to me and set up indoor and outdoor ceremony options the day of. About an hour before the ceremony, the weather cleared up and Alison was flying around to set up my dream outdoor ceremony. They worked SO hard to make me happiest bride and they pulled off the last minute change flawlessly. The night ran smoothly, all of our guests commented on how great the food and service was. We have no complaints!

The Perfect Venue

My husband and I cannot believe how perfect our wedding was. Cardinal and all there staff had a lot to do with this. From the moment we first met and spoke with Gina, our coordinator, she was nothing but accommodating, flexible, and friendly. The executive lounge was perfect for our small wedding and reception. It was gorgeous both inside and out on the grounds. So many of our guests raved about the food and I know I have never had a better meal at a wedding. All evening the staff kept checking in to see if everything was ok and if we needed anything. My husband and I could not recommend this place more. If you use Cardinal as your venue you will not be disappointed!
